not a dumb question at all ... blind drawing is just when you look only at the subject of your drawing and not down at the paper.  usually the drawing ends up coming out kind of wonky but this one ended being fairly right on.  i did change it a bit for the embroidery -- the knees were a little weird, and the face was not on the head in the original drawing.  Smiley  i got the idea from the book "drawing on the right sight of the brain" but i think it's taught in a lot of art classes and such.

thanks!  it's on just plain white cotton, the cheapie stuff from the fabric store.  it is fairly small, probably about 5 by 4 inches.  i usually work a lot bigger but i am enjoying the speed (and ease of transport!) of working a bit smaller.

that is awesome!  never stitched on polar fleece but it looks really good & the pattern is excellent.

yeah, most of my blind drawings look a lot more wonky.  i did alter this one in that i stuck her face back where it belonged on her head.  Smiley 

someone told me it looks like she's sitting on a piece of pie ... i wish i'd thought of that!  i guess i could tell people she is.  she does like pie.

thanks!  that was definitely among the better  blind drawings i've done ...

and i wish i could TRULY capture abigail's hair, because it is naturally crazy/awesome.  Smiley
thanks for the kind words.

this is an embroidered portrait of my friend abigail.  i did the design from a blind drawing i did of her at an art show.  it ended up looking not so blind, so i just cleaned it up a little and made it into an embroidery.
